From ClintB: 15mm Mahdists (31 points)



Clint adds to his Mahdist forces with this unit of infantry.

From Clint:
Continuing to work on my 10mm Pendraken figures I have 30 more Mahdists. Again 3 figures to a base, this time all melee armed. I still have many more in the lead pile so expect a few more submissions. 



Many of these figures have bright patches on their Jibbeh this is not something I will continue too much as I am not a huge fan of the results of painting the patches on. I Just think they look better without them. Sometimes you just have to try things and see. 
Great work Clint. I actually like the addition of the patches of colour. If you're thinking they are too bright you might try a localized diluted brown wash to tone it down to your taste.

This fine unit of Mahdi will give Clint 31 points.

  1. What? No camels? Another nice bunch of Madhists here Clint. I think the colour patches add a certain something to the figures.

  8. Very nice! I'm not a fan of the patches on my 28s either - I prefer the look of a less colourful horde. I'm saving them for characters and maybe elite units.

  9. Great stuff Clint. I'm not a fan of the patches either and didn't use them myself.

  10. Thanks for all the comments and advice. Clearly I have to suit myself, but as I am always happy to listen to others I will try the next batch with less patches and probably with more muted colours. And then re-evaluate them.

    Once again thank you all I do so appreciate the comments
